ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The Department of Employment Relations and Human Resources offers programs in people management to enable managers to respond to the current challenges in the global business environment. People management skills are an essential tool to modern management, as people make the difference between an organisation’s success or failure.
Our graduates possess the necessary skills and abilities to contribute effectively in their chosen field/s of employment relations or human resource management.
The Department works closely with the Centre for Work, Organisation and Wellbeing to develop world-class research relevant to the future of employment relations and workforce management.
Griffith Business School offers many opportunities for students to get involved with our community, build professional and social networks, and enhance their business skills. We also offer a wide range of scholarships, prizes and awards to assist with the costs of course fees, textbooks, accommodation and living expenses.
OUR REMARKABLE ALUMNI
Ms Amanda Spencer is an ERHR graduate who is now Qld Recruitment Manager for Star Entertainment Group.
In Amanda's role as Qld Recruitment Manager she has assisted in developing a partnership which sees representatives The Star visit Griffith Business School to recruit promising students both during and after their studies. A recent event has resulted in 54 eager students successfully gaining employment with the renowned hospitality and tourism brand.
“We see the partnership as helping the community, helping young people get their first job, or get their foot in the door,” she says. “It’s an opportunity for students to gain paid employment while they’re studying and I think that’s super crucial in this industry.”
